Description: What your rabbi probably has never told you, but could if you d only ask. Updated and expanded!
In Judaism we re allowed to ask questions. We are invited to ask them. But for young people, it often feels as if no one is willing to take tough questions about religion, ourselves and the world seriously.
Tough Questions Jews Ask, 2nd Edition, turns that all around. With honesty, humor and respect, Rabbi Edward Feinstein tackles topics as diverse as:
Why does God let terrible things happen?
What is God anyway?
If I pray for something, will I get it?
What s the meaning of life? Is that a dumb question?
Why does religion need so many rules?
Why be Jewish?
and in this new edition:
Do Jews get tattoos (and body piercings)?
I have a friend who is Muslim is that OK?
With insight and wisdom and without pretending to have all the answers Rabbi Feinstein encourages young people to make sense of the Jewish tradition by wrestling with what we don t understand.
